Current Favorites #5

I found such great new things this past month, y'all. Usually I sort of dread doing makeup because it just takes forever, but lately I've been loving it thanks to the items on this list. I'm just so excited by all of my recent purchases, especially the last item on this list, which I swear I'll shut up about eventually. Here's what I've been loving lately: 
  • Tony Moly x Pokémon sheet masks- It's time for me to admit that I'm a huge sucker for cute packaging, possibly to a fault. I found a 5-pack of these Pokémon sheet masks on Amazon (which have since disappeared off of Amazon, but you can still find them on YesStyle) and bought them instantly. I love Tony Moly's sheet masks and the Pokémon packaging is just a bonus.
  • e.l.f Cosmetics Contour Palette- I needed a new contour palette and although I haven't had the best experience with e.l.f. products in the past, I decided to give this one a shot. I certainly couldn't turn my nose up at the price-- it's only $6. The shades are easy to apply, easy to blend, and never look muddy like some other contour shades I've used. I'll definitely buy this palette again.
  • Pacifica Plushious Liquid Mineral Lipstick in Crave- I was wary about this purchase because I knew that unlike other liquid lipsticks, it doesn't dry all the way. I was afraid that it wouldn't last or would be sticky like a gloss. This lipstick certainly doesn't last all day though the color does remain a bit, but it also doesn't dry my lips out at all, it's a beautiful color (similar to Tarte's Tarteist  Lip Paint in Rosé), and smells like watermelon. I wish that it did dry a little more than it does, but it's a great product for when your lips need a break from drying products. I guess it's more like a pigmented gloss but without the stickiness?  I really like it and I'm definitely going to purchase it in more colors. 
  • NYX Cosmetics Liquid Suede Metallic Matte lipstick in Bella- NYX recently released their much-loved Liquid Suede lipsticks in metallic finishes and I picked up the color "Bella" which was described as a deep reddish copper. I'm not really seeing copper, to me it's more of a deep reddish berry shade. This is a liquid lipstick that will dry your lips out a bit, but it also lasts a very long time. Since this is a pretty glittery lip color, I reserve it for nights out.
  • No.7 Beautiful Eyebrow Sculpting Pencil in Blonde- I've been using No.7's eyebrow pencil for years because their blonde color is the only one I've found that isn't too dark on me. Seriously, why are so many blonde eyebrow pencils actually dark brown? Anyway! This isn't the exact eyebrow pencil I had been using, the old one was just a basic pencil. They have redesigned their brow pencils to twist-up instead of be sharpened, and the pencil is angled much like Benefit's Goof Proof Brow Pencil
  • Morphe X Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette- In case you missed it, I wrote a whole darn post on this in which I talked about my favorite and least favorite shades, whether it's worth the $38 price tag, and more.

  1. I wasn't sure if I wanted the Jaclyn palette or not but after reading a couple of awesome reviews on it I think I really want to try it! I just get annoyed that to ship to Australia it's so expensive! :(

  3. Great products!!! And affordable too, gotta love that. NYX lip products are some of my fave and the metallic one looks interesting. I'm also planning on getting more Pacifica products- I've liked what I bought from them so far and like their more natural take on beauty. The palette- there's just no words, it's beautiful! Xx Jen
